TGIF homies! It’s been one hellova week over here. I’ve been slammed at work which has led me to rant late into the evening to my better half (Joe). Luckily, he takes it like a champ and listens intently without interruption. Love that man!
So this morning, I took a trip to Starbucks. I never do this so on the drive over I decided to pay it forward and pay for the person’s drink behind me as a nice gesture. As I drove up to Starbucks, I noticed the line was wrapped around the building. Of course. So, I turned into the parking lot hoping to swing around the building and get in line. Well, this particular Starbucks didn’t have a pass through. You know how when you come around into a drive through there’s usually parking to your right and if someone wants to get out of the line they can do so? Yeah, this wasn’t the case. And you know how when you’ve made a mistake on the road and all you want to do is crawl into a hole? That was me this morning. And I got the most evil glare from a woman in line. I ended up looking like I was cutting in line and had to back track, turn around (in a tight space) and find a way to make two u-turns to get to the back of the line. Whew! What a way to start the morning! I noticed an employee near the automated sign. She was taking orders. She took mine and she asked me if I wanted to pay her instead of at the window. I declined her offer and said I’d pay at the window. Hoping the lady behind me would do the same I turned the corner and got to the window. I asked the guy at the window if he knew if the lady behind me had paid already. Of course she had! I told him all I wanted to do this morning was pay it forward. Unfortunately, today just wasn’t going to be that day. He did however want me to come back later to try again. The worst part? My order was wrong. I took the drink anyway and went on my merry way. I’ll try paying it forward later, but it just amazed me that there was nothing the employee could do to make my request happen. How about the next person in line? Sigh.
How about a little Week in Review to finish off the week?
